"Our dedicated faculty and staff continue to work hard while ensuring that our children are successful here at Stanton College Preparatory School. Our gratitude goes to all who contribute to our school’s daily operations. We extend a huge thank you to our PTSA
for all they do for our children and teachers. Despite obstacles presented by external factors, including the recent tornado, we have been working tirelessly to ensure that our students are safe. Parents, please refrain from dropping or picking your children up on Thirteenth Street. This is very dangerous and it creates a problem for traffic flow. Additionally, please do not direct your child to walk to the public library. We need your cooperation as we continue to work together for the children.
By now, all our children should be in tune with the Stanton culture and what the teacher expectations are for each classroom. Although we are almost at the midpoint of second quarter, we encourage you to continue perusing OnCourse so that you can track your student’s academic progress. Please stop by the Main Office if you still do not have access to OnCourse; we will assist you accordingly. Please note that progress reports for the second quarter will be coming home with the students on December 2, 2014. Our awesome teachers always go the extra mile for our children as they offer free tutoring before and/or after school. We also have free tutoring that is offered by our various clubs including the National Honor Societies (NHS
, Spanish, Math, English and Science), the history club and many others. All the tutoring locations, subjects offered, and the days are noted in the Guidance Office.
The safety nets roster is available on our website: under the staff tab
, there is teacher tutoring and under the students tab we have extra help
with other options. Please encourage your student to take advantage of these resources. Additionally, we have dedicated rooms after school for a Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science and Testing lab. We have an open door policy and we encourage you to make an appointment through Guidance
if you have questions or concerns about your child’s education and/or welfare.
As you well know, most universities are not only looking for students with a high GPA, but they are also looking for well rounded students. We have a myriad of clubs
in which your child can participate to gain that extracurricular experience. We are at the end of our fall sports, but I would like to encourage and extend an invitation for students to talk with our Athletic Director, Christopher Crider
, about participating in winter and spring sports if they missed the fall sports. Our winter sports include soccer, wrestling, and basketball, just to name a few.
Congratulations to our National Merit and National Achievement Semifinalists
, as well as our Commended Scholars. I am so proud of all the students who made the Principal’s all ‘A’ honor roll and the A/B honor roll for the first quarter. Emily Hart, our reigning Miss Stanton had an opportunity to compete against thirty girls from other high schools. We applaud her for winning the Miss Senior High Pageant. Our band brought home ‘Superior’ rating after the competition held at Fletcher Senior High School—we are proud of our band and Mr. Young. We applaud all the coaches for a great fall sports season especially, Volleyball for winning conference, swimming for advancing to state and cross country for keeping the fuel burning even during a year of transition. As always, we thank our parents for their continued support as we mold our children for the future—‘Ubuntu.’"
